30th Annual Conference for Young Artists

  • YA

    By participating in the Conference for Young Artists, students will use their imaginations to create and design their own works of art. Presenters will share their knowledge and talent with students by teaching them art techniques and methods. Teachers and parents can help students expand their imaginations and build creativity by encouraging them to try new art techniques. These programs can open doors to potential higher education and career opportunities for students.

    This conference is open to all students in grades K-8.
